    You need to look very carefully at colleges. Your application will be reviewed alongside of all the other well qualified applicants from your region of the world.

    Can your family pay anything towards your college costs? Are you looking at affordable options in India?

    No, my family is unable to pay my college costs, and I’m looking for options in USA, Canada, and Australia. Also, to mention I’m rejecting universities in India as I have no intentions of studying here !!

    This board sees similar questions every week or so, so ear back through some of them for more information.

    Your SAT scores aren't bad in general, but they aren't high enough for top 20 colleges, which are the ones most likely to give full scholarships. They are also on the low side for computer science, which is a very competitive major in the US, especially at the top 100 or so universities.

    The good news is that there are plenty of colleges who offer partial scholarships to international students. The bad news is that you have to expect to cover 50% or more of the cost and your work options on a student visa are very limited. You also need to prove you have the funds to attend before you can get a visa.

    Run the net price calculators at Bates, Grinnell, maybe University of Alabama for kicks. They aren't the only colleges generous to international students, but you can at least see what you're up against.

    You may not have a choice.
    The US universities are not under any obligation to admit you.

    -Your grades and test scores have to be exceptional to receive any attention.
    -You’re trying to apply to impacted major.
    -You require financial aid and don’t have the money to attend.
    -You are applying from India, which has thousands of overrepresented students trying to gain admission to US schools, this is your competition.
    Your safeties would be in India.
